Before we get all 'The Sky is Falling' with Alt-Right knuckleheads migrating to specific instances that cater to them, remember:

1. The block feature actually works here and should be used liberally if you see bad faith arguers or worse.

2. Instance-level personal blocks can be executed on the web client by going to the user, opening the additional […] menu and clicking 'Hide all from this instance'.

3. Petition your local moderating team to ban and suspend instances outright. We'll listen!

Good news everybody! We now have a :liberal: emoji!

Just type : liberal : without the spaces.

For the ~3 people it's relevant to, I've got a second account.

It's on liberalism.masto.host, an instance for people who support and are interested in liberal politics. It's UK Lib Dems so far.

There, "liberal" doesn't mean what USians mean by it (especially when we use it to mean "disparaged centrist" though that's increasing in the UK too).

Masto is all anarchists and commies so I'm having to come out but honestly liberal doesn't mean centrist. :)

Boost if you're comfortable holding hands with your friends.

@GeorgePotter It's a start. Once we get to replacing Council Tax with LVT I'll be a lot happier.

So I'm pleased to see that the Lib Dems are finally officially backing Land Value Taxation as a replacement for business rates:

Welcome one and all!

There's a lot of setting up to do but I'm your friendly neighbourhood admin and this instance is open to all who can say they broadly align with the LI definition of liberalism:

Mastodon for Liberals

Welcome! This is a trial instance to provide a community for liberals on Mastodon. We're open to all who think their beliefs broadly align with the Liberal International's definition of Liberalism but we wouldn't be Liberals if all didn't have some areas of disagreement with it - so don't feel you're unwelcome if you can't agree with all of it.

Please note our Code of Conduct - we won't tolerate abusive, illegal, hateful or bad faith behaviour - but as long as you're respectful of others and civil then you should be fine :)
